| A brothel? Really?
Another movie about the white slave trade ,a subject the French cinema was fond of :in the thirties Robert Siodmak made "Le Chemin De Rio" aka "Cargaison Blanche" .The working title of "Les Impures" was "Des Femmes Disparaissent" (Women vanish)and this title would be used for another movie about the same subject by Edouard Molinaro starring Robert Hossein in 1959.

That said,it's not good news:two excellent leads ,Raymond Pellegrin and Micheline Presles are lost in a story unworthy of their talent.There are enormous gaffes:how can Michèle,who works in a nightclub as a chanteuse/Cancan dancer, be so naive?How can she believe that her love "undergoes a period of training"?.It depends on what kind of training it is, mind you.Many of the scenes are good for a laugh.Barely.
